Is the 2015 Iran nuclear deal worth saving?

Iran is expressing frustration at attempts to save the 2015 nuclear deal. It has triggered a mechanism to resolve issues with the United Kingdom, France and Germany.

The Iranian foreign minister sent a letter to European leaders on Friday, accusing them of not living up to their side of the agreement.

Javad Zarif says Tehran has now triggered the dispute mechanism of the agreement six times.

The Europeans, Russia and China have been trying to salvage the deal after the United States pulled out in 2018 and reimposed sanctions.

Since then, Tehran has been rolling back its commitments.

But with the US determined to keep isolating Iran, is the agreement still worth saving?
